Quilting

Yesterday I managed to spray baste two quilts. I was most impressed with myself because I did it relatively easily and usually basting is anything but easy for me. Hopefully this means I am getting better at basting. I hope so, because I am so keen to have more finished quilts at my house and basting is such an essential part of the finishing process.

Today I quilted. It took me forever to get organised etc, but eventually I began. Then, just before dinner was ready I finished! (I did start on a small 80cm x 80cm quilt to "practice" on!)

Free motion quilting in swirls.

Not perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it! Next up, the quilt of my goal for this week! (Can I do it?)
